SHAL Engages TimeTec to Improve its Workforce Management

10:30 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


SHAL (Sea Hawk Lines) is a global logistics company providing the services of NVOCC, Freight Forwarding, Airfreight (IATA), Customs Brokering, Warehouse, Projects, Container Trading/Leasing, and Transportation around the world. Having offices in India, Malaysia, Singapore, and Myanmar and Network partners worldwide, SHAL Group provides integrated logistic solutions for customers across the globe.

Managing employees all over, SHAL grappled with a few blind spots that could be costly to the operation. For example, while the company installed biometrics devices at the headquarters, no such devices were available in their hubs and warehouses. Therefore, when the staff work at the sites, the management cannot track the staff attendance, creating a loophole in the workforce system. They also have to endure tedious overtime (OT) applications and approvals that are inefficient and tiresome for the party involved. In addition, the admins need to manually record all the punch card data from all warehouses every month, risking errors and additional costs to the company.   

The FingerTec biometrics TA700W devices and TimeTec TA present a perfect combination for SHAL to cover the blind spots effectively.


 
 
GPS clocking in TimeTec TA eases the attendance data capturing for the sales staff who work out of the office. The GPS clocking in TimeTec TA comes with not only the accurate attendance time, but it also captures the GPS locations in the attendance data, providing the office with the data it needs for better workforce management. In addition, through the concept of BYOD, TimeTec TA App presents total convenience to employees and provides the data to the management in real-time for easy supervision and employee management.

 
 
Using TimeTec TA, the cloud-based attendance system, the office can easily sync the attendance data from different warehouses and hubs into a single account for a general overview of the workforce situation. TimeTec TA's linkability also provides better and manageable overtime (OT) applications and approvals, which can be done quickly using the TimeTec TA app on a smartphone, and in turn, provides employees and HR the better tool to manage daily operations.

SHAL understands the need to improve workforce management for better operation, and they choose TimeTec to accomplish that. If your company is having similar problems and looking for a solution, contact our sales at info@timeteccloud.com, for a FREE consultation today!

Petroclamp Change to TimeTec Workforce During the Pandemic

9:00 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


Petroclamp Sdn Bhd is a company formed in 2008 based on the R&D to venture into the oil and gas industry and specializing in completion technology services and directional drilling services. With over 13 years of experience, its primary business is now divided into in-house design, rapid prototyping, and oil and gas activities.

The pandemic has posed a serious issue in their workforce management, and biometrics alone could not solve it for them. The biometrics system cannot centralize the data from the biometrics devices installed at their branches in Kemaman, Labuan and Hulu Selangor, and with the Work-from-Home in full effect during the lockdown, the management was left with no system to manage its scattered workforce. The company tried to manipulate Google Form for the WFH employees, but in the end, they turned to FingerTec TA700W and TimeTec TA for a more effective, systematic and insightful attendance system as they advanced.

TimeTec TA is a cloud-based attendance system designed specifically for time attendance data and monitoring, and FingerTec TA700W is a fingerprint device with PUSH technology that can send the data straight to the server, and therefore, it is the perfect choice for Petroclamp Sdn Bhd.

 
With TimeTec TA, HR and managers can combine all their branch attendance systems into one account for effective management and supervision; their staff who WFH can report their attendance through the mobile app, and the on-site staff can report their duty effectively from each location. Not only that, but TimeTec TA also gives them more than what they bargain for in terms of data, records and reports. TimeTec TA provides detailed, accurate and insightful data that they can use for decision-making and operation improvement.

Petroclamp Sdn Bhd's management can now ensure that all their workforce is optimized with TimeTec TA during the pandemic and beyond.  

If your company is still using Google Form and searching for a better system, we can assist you. Contact Ms. Yasmin at yasmin@timeteccloud.com for a FREE consultation today.

FingerTec Contactless Face Biometrics is the Way Forward

8:30 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


The Covid-19 pandemic has forced companies to review their safety measures to match the health standards requirements that ensure the protection of everybody. While rapid vaccination drives are in full force everywhere, it still leaves no room for companies to down their guards. One of the ways for companies to amp up safety is to reduce the chance of cross contaminations between employees, which means that they have to revisit all the access devices necessary to ensure a better shield from the get-go. 

Two companies from Jordan, Freudenberg Vileda Jordan Ltd and Siniora Food Industries, the clients of FingerTec sole distributor in the country, Euro Jordan, take the initiative to secure their companies with contactless biometrics devices from FingerTec. Freudenberg Vileda Jordan Ltd, with 50 employees, added more Face ID 4 complete with enclosures to the existing Face ID they have to provide more convenience to the growing staff count. The company has always believed in the practicality of a Face ID machine, and with Covid in the picture, they take it to another level and add an enclosure to make sure that no one can touch the machine. By adding more units to the mix, employees are distributed better, improving the entry flow significantly.


 
 
On the other hand, Siniora Food Industries, an operation with 500 employees, choose Face ID 5 FTD that comes complete with a temperature sensor as their attendance and access device for their premises. The system verifies identities and records all body temperature data instantly and does not give access if anybody has a feverish temperature, securing the premises right from the start.

These precautions are crucial to reduce the chance of getting shut down if a positive case is identified inside the premises, which can be very costly if it happens frequently.

The pandemic has introduced the new normal, and FingerTec is ready to assist in that transformation, providing appropriate devices for companies to stay safe going forward.

 
 
For companies in Jordan that require contactless biometrics devices, contact Euro Jordan at +962 5520012 or sales@eurojo.com for a great offer. For those from other countries, contact us at info@fingertec.com for agents in your country.

TimeTec Parking 8/12: Cloud Season Parking System

8:00 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


Season parking allows the car owner to park his/her car regularly, near his/her home or workplace, at a fixed and always discounted monthly rate. Even at a discounted rate, season parking income is steadier than casual parking. Season parking as part of the parking management system is always considered less challenging than casual parking.

This is not true.

In fact, in terms of daily operation, yes, season parking would pose a lesser problem because season parkers are "known" customers, easier to manage, and casual parkers are random; anything can happen. But in terms of the system, season parking is far more complicated. Because of the "known" user and a special discount provided, it kind of becomes a member. Hence, the season parking system is also a sort of 'membership' system; it has an application form, issuance of a special pass, deposit collection, monthly payment, overdue payment, 'membership' renewal, and termination. Besides individual 'members', it has group 'members', and their company pays their monthly 'membership' fees. And to add to the complication, it may have different types of 'membership', different parking rates, either with a dedicated or non-dedicated parking lot. Some parking sites even have nested parking areas for season parkers.

None of the above matters for the casual parkers; just set the parking rate; it applies to all.  

As TimeTec Parking Management System is a cloud-based system and App-enabled, it provides more features for season parking such as interactive capability likes payment reminders, online application, online payment, renewal, etc. It supports RFID cards, TNG cards, QR codes, and License Plate Recognition (LPR) for season parking access. When a parking site uses a QR code or LPR as season parking access, it can save the card issuance, and all administrative processes can be done over the internet.   


 
Teh Hon Seng, Founder and CEO of TimeTec Group
 
 
 
"There is a common problem faced by commercial buildings during peak hours when casual mixed with season parking. If parking lots are dedicated to season parkers, during peak hours, casual parkers would have difficulty finding parking even though there are still quite a lot of empty lots overhung with car plate numbers belonging to season parkers. What a waste! But in contrast, if parking bays are non-dedicated, season parkers would be upset by not finding a place to park their cars during peak hours while paying their monthly fees." Said TimeTec Group CEO, Teh Hon Seng.  


 
 
"How to balance the two requires arithmetic skills. TimeTec Smart Parking System caters for both parking types, and it is built-in with an analytic data module. Consolidating the peak hours can help to optimize the bay's allotment for season parking to ease traffic and reduce wait time at the parking site."   

He said, "To further reduce the unutilized season parking lots freed for casual parking during peak hours, it allows season parkers to notify parking operators about the availability. It is even better when integrated with TimeTec Smart Workforce System such as TimeTec TA for time attendance and TimeTec Leave for leave management. The system can auto-release the season parking lots when season parkers applied for leave, work from home or outstation, with the pre-consent agreement signed between season parkers and the parking operator at a certain discount rate for season pass renewal."

TimeTec Smart Parking 7/12: Pre-entry and the Next Activities

7:00 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


Seldom parking operation cares about pre-entry and the next activities; parking should be just some brief happenings at the entry and exit, plus the payment process. As long as it is free from any hiccups, it is considered a sound enough parking system.

But digital technology provides possibilities to link parking with other related activities, from pre-entry to the next activities after a driver parks his/her vehicle. For example, it would be great if a parking system can provide an availability check before we even step out of our home, letting us know that the car park is full rather than finding it out once we reached the destination.

It is even better to secure a parking bay before we arrive at a bustling mall by the likes of Booking a Spot for a movie. If we are VIP customers of a merchant, we get a parking bay reserved when we confirm an appointment. It is even great if the merchant or the host company can absorb the parking fee to display better hospitability.  

All of the above pre-entry features are impossible without a cloud parking solution. The next activities after the car has been parked are more abundant. We list down the following as a reference:


 
From a security perspective, TimeTec Parking System can integrate with the TimeTec Guard Patrol system. Therefore, when a user presses a panic button on a Mall App/Parking App, it will trigger the mobile device of the patrol guard on duty at the parking site. And simultaneously, the parking office's alarm will go off. Because the data includes the GPS coordinates,  the guard can quickly identify the user location to dispatch a rescue at once.  

More possibilities could have happened for commercial shopping malls if shopping malls have their app for consumers to download. The integration between the parking system and the mall App can provide more interaction and better consumer engagement. They can extend a discount or offset of parking fee to different merchants, push dynamic and targeted ad whenever customers enter a car park, book a spot, find my car, parking records and receipts; all are illustrated in the integration chart as follow:


 
For commercial office towers, parking can be treated as the threshold for the entire people flow, extending to other access points such as doors, turnstiles and lifts. When TimeTec Parking integrates with TimeTec Visitor Management System, the system can notify the host when the guest enters the parking. Suppose it bridged with TimeTec TA for time attendance and TimeTec Leave for a busy office tower. In that case, the parking operator could free the season parking spaces whenever season parkers take leave or work from home or go outstation.  Hence, parking operators can manage the occupancy of the parking site to its fullest.

For high-security buildings like a science laboratory, military offices, etc., the management can set parking access denied mode if employees try to access at non-working hours when the parking system is integrated with the TimeTec Smart Workforce Management solution.

TimeTec Smart Parking 6/12: Cloud Parking Management System

6:30 PM TimeTec 0 Comments

Unlike on-street parking, the off-street parking system is hardware intensive, requiring heavy investment in hardware equipment. Although the advancement of technology has largely brought down the hardware cost over the years, hardware investment is still quite significant when it comes to pricing. Besides, in its operation, another noteworthy part of expenditure still goes to hardware maintenance.
 
Despite the hardware cost, the software plays a more critical role in a parking system to ensure the success of parking deployment, especially when cashless and touchless are becoming the new trend that requires a revamping of software from its foundation. A shift from purely on-premise Windows-based/Web-based software to include a cloud platform is inevitable.
 
TimeTec Parking Management System, or PMS as its acronym, intends to change the hardware-driven parking industry to emphasize software as the main driver in the digital transformation era.
 
“The parking requirements for commercial office towers and shopping malls are almost identical in general. Both need a system that can cater for casual and season parking. However, because the traffic is heavier in shopping malls and they receive more random visitors, the parking system has to tailor and accommodate the nature of its operation to suit different environments. For example, shopping malls would prefer more in-depth data analytics that can provide descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, prescriptive and preemptive analysis than office towers. Furthermore, promo code and validation tied up with shopper’s purchase activities are essential for shopping malls, and they need more flexible parking rules.” TimeTec CEO Teh Hon Seng elaborated how software should handle the differences in parking operations.  
 
He continued, “Whereas office towers emphasize more on season pass subscriptions, renewals, nested parking, etc. for both tenant companies and individuals; even casual parking is equally important, less variety of parking methods are normally offered to users if compared to shopping malls. And for hotels, besides casual parking, they normally require valet parking. To ease the management, building owners that owned multiple buildings should ensure that their parking system can manage multiple parking sites at different locations. And, some buildings may impose fines for haphazard parkers, the same parking system should have the enforcement module.”
 
 
“The good news is, the comprehensiveness of TimeTec PMS covers all of the above and more. Another advantage of TimeTec PMS is that it supports a wide range of front-end parking and payment methods. This benefit helps the operator to generate just one report by consolidating all the data from different parking methods and payments to ease administration.”
 
Does your PMS come with a parking App?
“Yes.”
 
Do you provide API for your PMS to integrate with a third-party system such as a shopping mall App?
“Yes.”
 

 
The summary of TimeTec PMS is illustrated in the following diagram:

TimeTec Smart Parking 5/12: Unattended TimeTec Parking Kiosk, TPK

6:00 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


When retrieving a parking ticket to enter and paying cash to exit a parking site is the only option, the life of a parking solution provider is much simpler. Their job is to install unattended ticket dispensers at every parking entrance and terminals at every exit to accept and verify whether the parking ticket is paid before they lift the barrier. Besides, they will encourage building owner to place a few more autopay stations that carry a hefty price tag, plus, PC preloaded with parking software operates in the parking office. No internet needed, all locally networked.

When ticket and cash are removed to become ticketless and cashless, the parking industry suddenly stuffed with many options. TnG card, credit and debit card, e-Wallet, license plate recognition, smartphone QR code access and etc.; none dominates and monopolizes the market yet. Even the TnG card, the most popular among all, some minority prefers to use a credit card, especially foreigners with a short stay that don't usually use TnG cards. Hence to fulfil the market needs, some parking sites try to offer as many cashless and ticketless methods as possible. And, cash is detached from the network, but most of the cashless need a real-time online environment to verify.

In the end, we witness some small parking islands at the entrance and exit overstuffed with many different terminals that make you confused as to where to tap your card on. Too many parking terminals signal too many individual parking softwares at the back-end that could cause report consolidation problems.

"We are introducing unattended TimeTec Parking Kiosk, TPK to solve the problem. Our motto is One Kiosk Solves It All. The slim design, state-of-the-art TPK, offer ticketless, cashless and touchless functionalities, equipped with a wide range of parking and payment methods, such as TnG card, license plate recognition (LPR), QR code, eWallet, credit and debit cards, and etc., at the entry and exit lanes, to ease the access and payment process. With this, the costly autopay station can be eliminated entirely. We list the superiority and affordability of our TPK in the following table."


"We don't encourage the parking owners to offer all methods; it should adhere to users' preference according to their parking environment. Because some cashless parking methods with their dominant characteristics, for example, LPR, may make other methods irrelevant. We have a professional team to evaluate and provide the best mixture of solutions that suit parking owners. Since we are a one-stop solution provider with a strong R&D team, we also developed the back-end system that caters for all the cashless methods that we offer at the front end."

"With the availability of the Internet for cashless methods, we designed and equipped the kiosk with IP intercom instead of the conventional intercom system, IP CCTV instead of analogue CCTV to fully unleash the power of online capability."
